Labour leader Ed Miliband got a mixed reception at the mass rally in Hyde Park when he said he could not "promise easy times."
He got boos and cheers in almost equal measure when he told the crowd of 100,000: "This culture of two nations runs right across this government.
"They thought they were born to rule but it turns out they are not very good at it. Have you ever seen a more incompetent, hopeless, U-turning, pledge-breaking, make-it-up-as-you-go-along shower?"
He looked ahead to a Labour government. "There will still be hard choices with borrowing rising not falling. I do not promise easy times.
"It is right that we level with people that there will still be hard choices. Whoever was in government now there would be some cuts.
"This government has cut too far too fast. Self-defeating austerity is not the answer. We would make different but fairer choices.
"Day one with me as prime minister we would start to give all our young people a stake in the future.
"We would tax bankers' bonuses and put our young people working again, we would build 100,000 homes and get construction working.
"We would end the privatisation experiment in the NHS and repeal the NHS Bills."
